A new book has been written about a prince who was a good friend of Queen Victoria and was buried in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The Prince Who Walked with Lions by Elizabeth Laird tells the story of Prince Alamayu of Abyssinia and ties in with a campaign to get his remains returned to Ethiopia.
He still remains the only person who is not a member of the British royal family to have ever been buried at the historic castle.
The prince was orphaned by war, brought to England by the British Army and befriended by Queen Victoria.
It is available online from Amazon and in book stores.
